On Thursday Mark Zuckerberg received an honorary doctoral degree. The Harvard Commencement features Mark Zuckerberg arguing for "universal income." He went on to claim that "wealth inequality" is what is crushing the entrepreneurial spirit. Yes, he seriously said that with a straight face. You know what else would crush the entrepreneurial spirit? Taking money away from successful entrepreneurs.
Who better to tear apart this false narrative than Mark Dice? Check out this video NOW!
Harvard Commencement Features Mark Zuckerberg
Per Town Hall:
“We have a level of wealth inequality that hurts everyone,” Zuck argued. “When you don't have the freedom to take your idea and turn it into a historic enterprise, we all lose. Right now our society is way over-indexed on rewarding success and we don't do nearly enough to make it easy for everyone to take lots of shots.”
“We all know we don't succeed just by having a good idea or working hard,” he claimed. “We succeed by being lucky too.”
“If I had to support my family growing up instead of having time to code, if I didn't know I'd be fine if Facebook didn't work out, I wouldn't be standing here today,” he said. “If we're honest, we all know how much luck we've had.”
“It's our time to define a new social contract for our generation,” he said.
“We should explore ideas like universal basic income to give everyone a cushion to try new things. We’re going to change jobs many times, so we need affordable childcare to get to work and healthcare that aren't tied to one company. We're all going to make mistakes, so we need a society that focuses less on locking us up or stigmatizing us. And as technology keeps changing, we need to focus more on continuous education throughout our lives.”
He also reportedly teared up at one point recounting an interaction in a class he taught with a high school student that was in the country illegally.
"He wasn't sure if the country he calls home, the only one he's known, was going to deny him his dream of going to college" because of his immigration status, Zuckerberg lamented.
"I can't even say his name because I don't want to put him at risk" of deportation, Zuckerberg added.
I don't even know where to begin with this. Wealth inequality hurts everyone? No, actually it hurts those that are lazy and don't take action. This is the land of opportunity. Everyone has an equal opportunity, many just don't take advantage of it.
Then Zuck tears up for a poor illegal immigrants. Yes, the student calls America home. He entered the country illegally, but he still calls it home. And even worse Mark Zuckerberg feels sorry for him.
Many people have let wealth get to their heads, but Mark Zuckerberg may be the worst. Has anyone been more out of touch than this guy?
Like Mark Dice said, he dropped out of college to build a business. He built his business on an idea he stole from others. This guy is sick.
